Winemaker's Notes:

The color is a deep ruby red with garnet hues. On the nose, it is very rich and complex with scents of wild berries and spicy, toasted notes. On the palate, it is powerful yet very elegant, with a persistent finish.
Ideal with game, roasted and grilled meats and medium strength cheeses.
My Notes:

About Val di Suga:

Val di Suga is one of Tenimenti Angelini’s family-owned triad of estates in Tuscany. Located near the ancient hill-town of Montalcino, Val di Suga is the only winery in the region with three vineyards in each of the microclimates surrounding the hill. The property encompasses 250 acres, of which 140 are planted in high-density vineyards (7,600 vines/hectare). Each vineyard has its own unique exposure and soil composition, combining to make a wonderfully balanced and complex Rosso di Montalcino.
